T-Shirt Print on Demand Research For Foreign Marketplaces – New Merch Informer Updates

Selling on Merch by Amazon has evolved since the program first launched and for the better! What used to be a program where you had to wait months and months to be accepted with a few t-shirt options and only the US market; has expanded into many marketplaces with almost global fulfillment. Now, if you have been selling for any period of time, you likely know that the VAST majority of sales occur in the US market, and thus most people are doing research for creation of these designs just in the US market. However, sometimes doing research to find untapped niches in specific markets can be a way to make more sales, get ahead, and target the cultural differences […]

Merch Informer – COVID-19 Update

Hello Merch Community, With the news dropping yesterday in the Merch Dashboard that they have suspended print operations in the USA due to COVID-19, we have decided to take action. Currently we know a few things. First, the USA print fulfillment centers are completely shut down while the EU print fulfillment centers remain open for the time being. Second, EU products remain available for sale but all Merch products on the US market are unavailable and some may be disappearing from search (as you may have started to notice). Third, publishing to Merch by Amazon has currently been suspended. There is no current way to upload your designs to live status nor is there a way to upload new products […]

Single Upload Interface – List Your Designs On Hundreds Of Products Across Multiple Marketplaces

You have all heard the saying that ‘time is money’. There are only 24 hours in a day, and with the amount that we sleep and take care of other needs, chances are that you only have a set amount of time to work on your business per day. Let’s say maximum, you get 8 productive work hours per day and much less than that if you have a 9-5 job outside of Print on Demand. In those 8 hours that you are focusing on your Print on Demand Merch business, you have a LOT to cram in there. Research Design Creation Keywording/Optimization Listing Monitoring/Tweaking products Traffic Generation Some of these things take longer than others, notably, LISTING all of […]

Merch Informer Designer Patterns Added – One Click Merch Patterns

One of the requests we have been receiving lately is adding an EASY way to create patterns in Merch Designs. Over the last year or so, we have been creating a lot of pattern designs especially for Popsockets that have been working INCREDIBLY well (few hundred sales a month). What bottle necked us though, was that to design these, we had to copy and paste the same layer over and over again and re position those layers so that everything looked right before we could download and upload the design to Merch by Amazon. For both of those reasons (requests and need to make this easier), today we have released an update to the Merch Informer designer to allow you […]

How To Find Trending Phrases On Merch by Amazon – New Merch Informer Module

One of the hardest things to do when you are working on your Merch by Amazon business is find keywords and phrases that are getting in front of the right audience. Getting in front of the customers that are spending money already is difficult, but finding phrases where you are NOT competing against 10,000 other sellers is even more difficult. But…. What if it did not have to be? What if there was a way to find phrases that are just starting to take off and make sales, that you knew of before anyone else? It would be a lot easier to make designs that start making sales quickly right? Exactly! This is why we released a new module inside […]

Merch Informer Trademark Protection Now Live On Etsy

Since Merch Informer launched the trademark protection plugin in September of 2018, it has saved tens of thousands of rejections on Merch by Amazon from our users. The fact of the matter is that there are LOTS of trademarks out there, many of them frivolous and they all pose a risk to your account. Going through the USPTO website is a pain, time consuming, and all around just not a fun time. You may end up using a word or phrase that is trademarked and you had NO idea. Well, the trademark extension put an end to that. Over the last few months we have started to get more and more requests for the trademark protection plugin to check listings […]

Create Scaled Design Variations With The New Merch Informer Designer Update

Bulk designs on Merch by Amazon have been something that we have not talked much about. Sometimes they can do EXTREMELY well while other times they can just fill up your account with lots of shirts that come down and do not sell. However, if you have taken the time to do your research properly and know what niches a good design variation would do well in, then I have good news for you! Merch Informer just released a bulk design tool in the Merch Informer Designer! Previously, it would take a LONG time to go through and edit individual files to change out specific words in a design. Even if you were using Photoshop or Illustrator, this was a […]
